For those of you not familiar with PBI Gold:

Turnout Gear
...Since outer shell protection is the firefighter’s first line of defense, there is no room for compromise. That is why we only offer premium outershell protection in PBI Gold and PBI Matrix turnout gear. These exclusive fabric blends take personal protection to a whole new level by combining unmatched flame and thermal protection with unsurpassed strength and durability. The measure of any outershell fabric is ultimately determined by its performance. PBI Gold and PBI Matrix are no exception. Tested in labs, fire schools, and in real-world fires throughout the country, both PBI Gold and PBI Matrix stand up to aggressive use under some of the most demanding applications...They resist dangerous chemicals and acids and they will not shrink or become brittle after thermal exposure. PBI outershells are lightweight, flexible, and fast drying to provide superior comfort and reliability...PBI fabrics are specified by major fire departments and brigades throughout the world.
